The IMMAF announced Tuesday they will open up the 155 and 170 women’s divisions starting with the European Open Championships of Amateur MMA, in Birmingham, England November 19 -22.
The decision comes after teams demanded the divisions to be added. The IMMAF also stated they could add a 105 division in the future if they get enough requests.
The IMMAF has become a platform to make amateur divisions worldwide and provide a regulatory body for those countries without one. The World Championship Tournament will take place in July 2016 in Vegas for the third year.
Those interested in taking part of the European Open can find details on the IMMAF website.
